The Treatment of Hemorrhoids in Los Angeles
Hemorrhoids can be large and result in persistent bleeding. In order to provide relief from these symptoms, surgery is a necessary procedure. This procedure can be performed once and patients can be free of the discomfort caused by hemorrhoids, leading to an improved quality of life.
Hemorrhoid prevention starts by recognizing the causes. The veins in the rectum wall can become enlarged, twisted, swollen, or inflamed, causing large bumps that bleed or cause significant discomfort. The internal hemorrhoids are formed inside the anus and external hemorrhoids are located right under the skin. Both types can protrude or create discomfort during certain tasks.
One of the best ways to reduce the risk of this condition is to eat a diet that reduces the chances of constipation and maintaining a healthy weight. Other options include eating fiber-rich foods, drinking more water, regular exercise, avoiding excessive use of laxatives, and avoiding strained bowel movements.
If you or a loved one is affected by this condition and it is causing great discomfort or concern, call the Los Angeles office of Dr. Mark M. Davidson for an evaluation. Our team will ensure you are completely evaluated in order to recommend the best approach to treatment.
